A Dhaka court today placed Salim Prodhan on a 3-day fresh remand in connection with a money laundering case.
Metropolitan Magistrate Satrabrata Sikder passed the order after the Criminal Investigation Department filed a 5-day remand plea.
The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) detained Salim Pradhan on September 30 over illegally running an online casino business.
The law enforcers arrested him from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport while he was trying to flee to Thailand in a flight of Thai Airways the same day.
During a raid, the RAB seized 48 bottles of foreign liquor, Tk29 lakh in cash, foreign currency amounting to Tk77 lakh, 12 passports, one computer server, four laptops and two deer hides from his office.
According to the RAB sources, Salim Prodhan is the mastermind behind the online gambling business in Bangladesh.
